The arrival of new media and learning technologies is remaking the library in many ways. As librarians’ roles change (particularly in the service of academic STEM patrons), they need new strategies to maintain their relevance. As part of this, they must leave (sometimes physically) the traditional confines of their libraries and offices and engage with faculty and students.

To assist in promoting outreach strategies, JoVE is awarding four librarians from around the world with a scholarship to attend the Charleston Conference. These librarians will have demonstrated proven best outreach practices in their respective institutions/countries. The obstacles to outreach are many: Along with the stream of STEM discoveries, there are now ebooks, multimedia channels, and much more nontraditional types of content. Many students don’t have the traditional library search habits or skills. During the comparative session, these librarians will provide examples of their successful outreach campaigns; tips on outreach empowerment; and insight into overall challenges/successes for libraries. They will offer cross-national viewpoints and discuss the various problems they faced and how they overcame them for successful outreach.
